Murder charges filed in killing of El Dorado County mother

El Dorado County prosecutors officially filed murder charges against two El Dorado Hills teens this afternoon.

Steven “Boston” Colver, 19, and Tylar Marie Witt, 14, are suspected in the killing of Joanne Witt, 47, whose body was discovered Monday when she failed to show for work.

Witt was the mother of the suspect Tylar Marie Witt.

Colver is scheduled for arraignment in El Dorado County Superior Court in Placerville on Monday. He has been charged with the special allegation of using a deadly and dangerous weapon.

Witt will appear at a juvenile detention hearing on Monday. Because Witt is a juvenile, those proceedings will be closed to the public.
